Emanuel Ax Performs Brahms

Holland Center Saturday, March 21 at 8:00 PM

Join the Omaha Symphony as we celebrate our 99th anniversary season with an engagement you won't soon forget! The world-renowned pianist Emanuel Ax takes on Brahms’ majestic Second Piano Concerto for a one-night-only event. Led by Maestro Thomas Wilkins and joined by the Omaha Symphony, this extraordinary musician will sweep you away from the very first notes of Brahms’ romantic masterwork.

In his decades-long career, Emanuel Ax has performed in the greatest concert halls around the world alongside the most talented musicians in our age. He's also recorded extensively, including recent releases of the Mendelssohn Trios with Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman, Strauss’ Enoch Arden narrated by Patrick Stewart, and discs of two-piano music by Brahms and Rachmaninoff with Yefim Bronfman. Mr. Ax has received GRAMMY® Awards for the second and third volumes of his cycle of Haydn’s piano sonatas. He has also made a series of Grammy-winning recordings with cellist Yo-Yo Ma of the Beethoven and Brahms sonatas for cello and piano.

This special engagement follows the Omaha Symphony's 2020 Gala. To reserve a table (includes tickets to the concert) for that evening, click here.
